County Governments face numerous challenges in their operations. These include up to date spatial plans, pressure on existing amenities, uncontrolled developments and pressure on service delivery among other challenges, the introduction of the county government act mandates every county government to have an up to date spatial database for county planning. Geographic Information System (GIS) technology can enable planners to research, develop, implement, and monitor the progress of their plans. It also provides planners, surveyors, and engineers with the tools they need to design and map their neighborhoods and cities. Planners have the technical expertise and fiscal understanding to transform a vision of tomorrow into a strategic action plan for today, and GIS facilitates this decision-making process.
